FAQ

Going off-grid can present a lot of questions. Please read through the FAQ to learn more about what to expect from this unique experience.

Check-in will take place at our Commons building between 3pm and 7pm. If you plan to arrive after hours, please contact us at 470-910-6657 and we will provide you with an access code for your casita. 

Check out is at 10am.

There is a designated parking area next to the Commons.

The hikes are tailored to your personal goals and skill level.  Most hikes last either four or eight hours. 

Two of the four Casitas are pet-friendly.  Pets require pre-approval, and owners are subject to an additional cleaning fee.

Our electricity is supplied by a solar system (with a back-up generator for emergencies); all water is trucked in; the main source of heat is a wood burning stove; and wastewater is treated by a septic system. 

Each casita has 80 gallons of water per day. This allows for approximately two 10 minute showers each day. If you will need additional water, please let us know so that we may make arrangements for a water delivery. 

Should you need assistance with the wood burning stove, we are happy to help.

Electrical appliances put a strain on our solar power system, so please leave hair dryers, curling irons, electric razors and other electrical appliances at home. Also, cell phones and computers should be charged during the day if possible. 

Each casita kitchenette has a mini fridge and small gas range so that you may prepare simple meals. We are a BYOB facility. We provide two ice trays in your freezer, additional ice is available for purchase at the local gas station. In the Commons area, there is a canteen with cold beverages, coffee, and tea.

The nearest grocery stores are 30 minutes away and are located in Williams, Tusayan, and Grand Canyon Village. There are a variety of options in Flagstaff, including a Whole Foods and Safeway.
